    Men With Gigantic Watermelon
        • Is that an FN logo or some other watermark down in the left corner? Eye can't tell ...
        • Looks to me as if there is something white, like some kind of logo or symbol,on the grass in the lower left corner ...
        • Thank you, I have adjusted

        • Got me wondering what they are up to behind that melon??? LOL! Great expressions!
        • Congrats on bronze! Very entertaining chop! Had you until the last 2 voters!!!
  • Watermelon Eye

    Watermelon Eye
        • The iris doesn't cast a shadow on the white of the eye ... at least I dont think so!
        • Not sure what you mean? I haven't put a shadow in or I have put a shadow where there shouldn't be one???
          The iris does actually protrude out of the egg shaped eye!!

    Watermelon Spaceship
        • Work of art - full view is an eye candy for any astronomy lover.

          Love the WIP!
        • Agree! Nice work! But you really need to view full to see the details!
        • Really nice image this, thought it should have came higher!
  • Watermelon Caterpillar

    Watermelon Caterpillar
        • I've seen melon balls but this is way funnier!

        • One of the best ones in the show. Me likes how you made the cut and put the mantis there
  • Cat Resting on a Watermelon

    Cat Resting on a Watermelon
        • LOL! Thats cute as hell! Should maybe do a LOLCATZ comment in the picture instead of just the name of the entry! Thats what this pic reminds me of!!
        • This is cute! A little odd on the upper right arm... A little of the melon (small outer line) needs to be removed or something maybe?
        • Thanks, I changed the title and cleaned up the upper right arm.
        • Cute cat!
          I like how you used your sources here an the composition is cute - would work for children's books.
          Some shadows are needed here though - for more realism - from the cat as well as from the watermelon on the grass

  • American Gothic with Watermelons

    American Gothic with Watermelons
        • It never fails to amaze me the variety of ways choppers treat this picture. Has to be the most chopped image ever. This one is pretty good, a bit evil. The blending around the woman's face needs some work in my humble opinion. The placement of the man's glasses is great.
  • Melon Earth Rise From the Moon

    Melon Earth Rise From the Moon
        • I was doing something similar, until I saw this! FrEAKING Psychics, Sometimes I'd like to ...
        • Nice shadowing. The moon is the first thing I thought of when I seen the source pic.
  • Melon Falls on a Bust

    Melon Falls on a Bust
        • Y'oughta get rid o' the artist's signature, it throws off the image (in my opinion), plus the shadows don't carry over to the pink pulp...there's still time to edit these simple things; Good Luck!
        • This is interesting... I really like this!
        • Very artistic. Should have scored higher, in my humble opinion
        • I totally agree with your humble opinion, but the "gods" are against me I guess???
  • Melon World

    Melon World
        • Full view shows the real scale of this work. Quite clever and creative

        • First time I have tried to replicate a comic book scene. Getting the mood right is hard, without looking like my 8 yr old grandson did it.
        • Actually, I think you did a great job and expected a higher score.
  • Watermelon Person

    Watermelon Person
        • This is kinda scary but not sure what you are stabbing 'it' with? Like a soft toy ferret with a big red toungue?? Love what you did with victim though!!!
        • Thanks fellas... I'm really worried I may be pushing the limits of the rules on this. Anyways, I did it, I like it, I submitted and...
